Short-term Rentals


Possible Future Text Amendment

An increase is short-term rental (STR) use as been observed within residential zoned area over the past couple of years.  Many cities have adopted ordinances to regulate this use focused on:

  • Clearly defining STRs from other lodging uses.
  • Identifying appropriate location for this use by zoning classifications such as residential zones vs commercial zones.
  • Identifying the positive and negative impacts of this use for property owners, neighborhoods, and the city as a whole.

The Belmont City Council has requested staff look into this topic and report back to them with the results.
